On my Bold, from time to time, the lower and upper keys: y,u,h,j,b,n does not function. pretty annoying when trying to type sms and e-mails. Any suggestions how to solve this problem. It is not a constant problem - only occurs from time to time.

Re: keyboard

What happens when you hit the keys? When the problem happens have you tried to reset the device by removing the battery for 30 seconds?

Re: keyboard

Can you take it back to your carrier to see if it can be replaced or if it's still under warranty?

Re: keyboard

Ok, i ll try that - but at the moment the keys are alive. Also I do not know if the seller will give me a new one. I live in China and had to buy it from a private broker.

Re: keyboard

Oh I had thought you brought it from your carrier. It may be worth a shot to take it onto one of your carrier's stores to see if it's something that can be fixed. Unfortunately with a hardware problem there's not a lot you can do. Good luck
